The one thing I hate about traveling is waiting through long security lines. They can take up to three hours; if you’re going on vacation, they can be the wrong way to start your holiday. Who doesn’t love speeding through security so you can get to your destination quickly?
New ways of getting through lines like the TSA are getting easier and quicker. More than one airport is adding reservation systems that allow you to book a time to go through security. This is groundbreaking, considering the summer season is slated to become one of the busiest times of year for traveling.
Destinations like Orlando, Florida, are adding this system to their airports, and it’s completely free. All you have to do is reserve a time and date and be there for your appointment.
Say goodbye to the days of waiting through hours-long security lines that can be for many the bain of traveling anywhere. What’s even better is that you don’t need to have Clear or TSA PreCheck, which some people might assume these services are exclusive for.
I don’t know about you, but having something like this at my airport will make any vacation better, in my opinion.
These 7 U.S. Airports Allow You To Skip Long Security Lines With Advanced Reservations
Los Angeles International Airport, California
Los Angeles International Airport, otherwise known as LAX, is one of the busiest airports in the United States, and it’s a central hub for tourism, considering Los Angeles is a bunch of people’s bucket lists domestically and globally. With this new reservation system, you can reserve a time using the Clear system website and breeze through security.
Minneapolis−Saint Paul International Airport, Minnesota
The second destination on this list is less popular than other tourist spots, but it’s a great place to depart from. The same system (website) brought to you by Clear allows passengers and future jet setters to reserve a time. All you need is the date you are departing, your airline, and your flight number. The rest is magic.
John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York
New York City is a mega tourist destination, and if you’re flying out there, you know how bad the security lines can be. I once had to wait more than four hours for a flight at JFK and almost missed my flight. This is a lifesaver for one of the biggest and busiest airports in the country.
Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey
Alongside JFK, Newark Liberty International Airport is another busy airport because of its proximity to New York City. Depending on where you’re located in New York or New Jersey, this can be the most convenient airport, and saving time through security is a bonus.
Orlando International Airport, Florida
Orlando is the world’s theme park capital, and mostly everyone has flown out of its busy airport. It was one of the first airports to offer this service. It all started in 2021 and has become so popular that even countries like Germany and Canada are adopting it.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona
Arizona is a beautiful state with many natural amenities that are great for travelers. With this service, the airport experience will be a breeze, and you’ll fly out in no time.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Washington
Washington is a nature lover’s paradise. The state has everything from fantastic nature parks to outdoor activities like kayaking and hiking. If you’re into wellness, this destination is perfect for getting away. I once did a solo camping trip in the Pacific Northwest, which changed my life. Seeing giant pine trees with turquoise lakes blew my socks off.
With this new service, getting through the airport will be a breeze, and you should take advantage of it. Look into the service the next time you’re in one of these cities. It’s completely free, and you don’t have to do much. It’s a great way to start the summer.
